10 Reasons Behind North Korea’s Aggressive Behavior

North Korea, while officially advising foreign diplomats to leave the country, continues to encourage the visits from foreign tour groups. The photo shows a group of North Korean citizens excitedly welcoming the foreign tourists with the signs roughly translated from Korean as “Welcome hostages!”

North Korea’s rhetoric, never exactly conciliatory, grew even more hostile in the recent weeks. The country’s leader Kim Jong Un has threatened to incinerate the United States and South Korea, asked foreign diplomats to leave the country, and moved the missile launchers closer to the coast. Last week, North Korea even posted threatening clips on YouTube, signaling that the hostility escalated to the whole new level. So what’s really behind North Korea’s aggressive behavior? Here are 10 possible reasons.

1)  The country’s attitude turned much more hawkish since Kim Jong Un appointed Dick Cheney as Vice Supreme Leader of North Korea.

2)  Bashar al-Assad asked Kim Jong Un for a friendly favor, one deranged dictator to another, to distract media attention while he’s trying to quietly get rid of those pesky Syrian rebels.

3)  This behavior is just North Korean version of March Madness.

4)  Kim Jong Un keeps visiting the army units and inspecting front lines, because he wants to delay as much as possible his inevitable return to the dreaded household chores at home.

5)  There is a severe food shortage in North Korea, and we all tend to act crankier when we are hungry.

6)  Kim Jong Un watched too much Fox News and became convinced that Obama is coming after him to take away his guns.

7)  North Korea is conducting military testing to test the patience of the United States and South Korea.

8)  Kim Jong Un is trying to score some free PR to help him land a guest spot on the Honey Boo Boo reality show.

9)  During his recent visit to North Korea, Dennis Rodman must have introduced Kim Jong Un to some powerful mind-altering stuff, probably coffee.

10)  Kim Jong Un is upset that US Department of State denied his green card application.

    I think it was the combination of Dick Cheney and Fox (sic) News that did him under.

    Great list! Numbers 1,7,8 are faves.

    A couple other possibilities:
    1. He proposed to Chinese beauty Qi Shu and was rudely shut down. Probably because of his small…country…
    2. Trade restrictions on luxury items have stymied his diet of Lobster, Caviar, Kobi Ribeye, and New York Cheesecake. Now he has consume whole farm animals at a time to maintain his girth. The situation has made him very cranky.

    Part of it was a miscommunication with one of his generals who said “Nuke the Chinese” and was talking about the leftovers. [stolen from somewhere :-)]

    I like #3 the best. Simple case of March Madness run amok. Hey, what can you say about a nuclear-armed dictator who idolizes Dennis Rodman? And we all thought Rodman went away, didn’t we?

      Jest because Rodman stopped playing, it doesn’t mean he’s gone away. He’s off the TV, but he can still visit foreign countries and suck up to random dictators.
